This page last updated June 8, 2017

The Air Resources Board (ARB) Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP) is designed to promote the purchase of battery electric, plug-in hybrid electric, and fuel cell electric vehicles.  Rebates of up to $7,000 per light-duty vehicle are available for individuals, nonprofits, government entities, and business owners who purchase or lease an eligible vehicle. For current rebate statistics, please visit the Center for Sustainable Energy's (CSE)  CVRP Rebate Statistics Webpage.

ARB approved the Fiscal Year 2016-17 Low Carbon Transportation Investments and AQIP Funding Plan (Funding Plan) in late June 2016.  Modifications to the Funding Plan was approved in late October 2016, which included several changes to CVRP.

NEW!Currently, funding for CVRP is available and applications are being accepted.  Funding is appropriated for the rebate project each year in the State Budget.  FY 2016-17 funding is expected to be exhausted in early July.  CVRP will reserve $8 million for qualified lower-income applicants, as described here, thereby prioritizing payments to low- and moderate-income applicants in accordance with program requirements.  Should funds be exhausted before new funding is allocated to the project, all other applicants will be placed on a waitlist.
